Someone recently asked how they could feel safe when out walking with their dog at night. They recently moved to an area without sidewalks, but now that it is starting to get dark earlier, it is inevitable that they must walk their dogs at night.
There are reflective collars and leashes, and of course you can adorn yourself with reflective clothing. Those all work, but it is always better to be safe than sorry. More reflective items mean that drivers will be able to see you more quickly in low-light conditions. The Bright Steps Reflective Leg Bands for Dogs will make your dogs visible at night! They can be seen up to 1/4 mile away, and are very bright. At under $10 for a set, they are a very affordable solution to keeping you and your dog safe.
I also like to wear them on my dogs when I hike in the woods. I spray or soak them with my favorite tick repellent for an extra layer of protection against ticks. Ticks can’t jump, but they crawl from vegetation. When they hit the treated leg bands, they generally drop off the dog before they can attach. When I get home, I remove the leg bands. I don’t like spraying chemicals directly on the dog, and this way the chemicals come off as soon as we are done hiking.
Bright Steps Reflective Leg Bands are available in three sizes to fit most dogs, even dogs up to 175 pounds! They can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy.com, where a portion of all revenue is donated to Rescue and helping dogs in need.
